  • Sorry, but I'm afraid that sounds like the camera has failed its startup check of the shutter and IBIS system. I've had the same on an EM-1. Its an Olympus service job,
  • Same here - sadly I've got 25k and haven't even finished sorting out my Zenfolio site ... but I think its time to cut my loses. Looking at Photoshelter, but waiting for info on bulk uploading ...
  • I think the tone of some of the criticism is a bit out of order ... anyone who's been around here for a while will know that Sam produces some stunning images and certainly knows how to handle a ...
  • Created discussion thread Zenfolio Rant
    Gotta vent somewhere! So a few months ago I started the process of migrating my in-house developed site to Zenfolio (still in progress!). OK, it wasn't a perfect solution, but of the various ...
  • Replied in Eggs and baskets
    Seems to me that many options are "pretty good". No options are perfect - one can always think up a scenario which will result in data loss. My thinking is you simply don't put all your eggs in one ...
  • Replied in Snailspace
    Fair comment, and you're probably right. Midday light sucks.
  • Replied in Sad old men
    I haven't done this sort of photography for a long time simply because it is very difficult to get across the right message - indeed I found myself asking myself what I was trying to achieve. Havin ...
  • Created photo thread Snailspace
    Snailspace
  • It's not so much that any one thread is inundated, more that wedding and event queries are scattered across pretty much all the forums - just do an all forum search and you'll see what I mean. The ...
  • Completely support that idea ... - wedding questions/issues keep cropping up all over the place, hence it is quite possible the question has been addressed in another forum (probably one for gear ...
  • For this sort of shoot the "look" of the image is as important (maybe more so) than technical quality. I've long wondered if the huge increase of mobile phone / small sensor images on web sites ...
  • The facial recognition thing in Lightroom works reasonably well ... sometimes surprisingly well, once you have identified a few images of an individual. But that's where it ends - you can't ...
  • I figure I must be missing something here. Let's ignore blown highlights and blocked shadows for a moment - the scene is comfortably withing the dynamic range of the sensor. Is it not desirable to ...
  • Looks interesting - sadly not yet available in my region. I'm not aware of anything like this at a lower cost, but that doesn't surprise me given that this could only work in a large scale ...
  • That's just being pedantic. Substitute "play" with "work" if it makes you happy No one's arguing that. Regardless of the method used, the photographer has to do the interpretation and decision ...
  • No, you don't need it, and as I think I said earlier, there are a variety of ways of coming to a correct result. And all must be used with a bit of knowledge. The in camera histogram may not be an ...
  • True, but I think exposure is simply the first stage of the image creation process - the exposure should be made with regard to how you will process the image ... which kinda neatly circles back ...
  • Well, of course, accurate exposure matters, I meant does it matter which technique you use if you understand what you're doing. I don't say its a good or bad term. Its a term in wide spread usage, ...
  • The histogram (and blinkies) may not be 100% accurate ... but neither are light meters, so you dial in compensation. But it gives you a base line from which to work, and, as with exposure meters, ...
  • I only shoot RAW as well, and yes, when I started with EVF I had exactly the same view, and turned all that stuff off. Then I thought, maybe I should give it a fair trial and was converted. I'm old ...
